"100 years ago, American soldiers fought in France, in Belleau to defend our freedom". And, at the time, Macron tweeted that the tree served as "a reminder at the White House of these ties that bind us".
"We will send him another, it is not a tragedy", he said.

"We need to have a strategic debate, so this week I will have another, long and intense conversation with Vladimir Putin, as the president of France and the G7", Macron stressed. "There is disagreement among us, but we work together".
"I think they may have different perspectives, but they have very open conversations and they are very comfortable agreeing and disagreeing".
"I think that chaos is here".More news: Gatland to lead Lions for third time in South Africa
